I suspect many of you will already know that the Commerce Commission has released its
report into broadband quality for the last six month of last year:
On page 31 there is a specific discussion about the impact of caching DNS resolution
"The DNS performance from remote test sites to the ISPs tested in all cities shows
that webpage loading is slower the further the user is from the Auckland based DNS."
This implies that all ISPs have their caching DNS resolvers based in Auckland.
I would be very interested to know if that is that case. If anyone could enlighten me, on
or off list, I would be very grateful.
